Silva's Everton had appeared not to be interested in returning to the negotiating table having been messed around by Barca in their attempts to sign Mina, with United's late interest having also muddied the waters.

The Barcelona centre-back has been strongly linked with United this summer with manager Jose Mourinho in the hunt for new defenders.

Yerry Mina, alongside the rest of the World Cup stars who were given extended time off due to their involvement at the tournament, returned to the Ciudad Deportiva de Sant Joan Despí this morning.

"Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen was also present, following his arrival on Sunday from the club's tour of the United States". But their bid of €30 million plus €4 million in variables was rejected.

Lucas Digne, former Barcelona and current Everton player, tried to recruit Mina for the Toffees.

United have stepped up their interest in Colombian Mina as they look to strengthen their defence ahead of the new Premier League season.

L'Equipe suggests that Mina would prefer Lyon to Everton because they can offer Champions League football.

"If in every position you have very good players it's hard for the coach". In fact, Marcos Rojo might hold the key to Mina's future. "But they want to go to Manchester United", Arango said, quoted by ComuTricolor. He had an impressive showing at the World Cup with Colombia, scoring two goals.

Yerry Mina was purchased from Palmeiras in Brazil in January by Barcelona, but has found game time rather hard to come by and with the purchase of Lenglet, Mina finds himself even lower down the pecking order at the Spanish club.

With the arrival of Arturo Vidal, Vidal takes up a non-EU roster spot that would have gone to Mina. After all, the player is young and still has a lot of potential.
